The person who accused Sourav Ganguly of not performing during his tenure as BCCI boss was the owner of Chennai Super Kings – N Srinivasan, Cricket Age exclusively learns.
Ganguly has been in the news since Tuesday (October 11) as his exit from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was confirmed in a meeting held in Delhi.
The BCCI members met in Delhi where Ganguly failed to get any backing from the board and he was asked to vacate his role on October 18 during the BCCI AGM which will be held in Mumbai.
According to sources, Srinivasan, who is a former BCCI head, cited that Ganguly did not perform as per expectations and backed former India all-rounder Roger Binny to replace Ganguly as the Indian cricket board’s chief.
“Binny, who filed his nomination on Tuesday, enjoys the backing of former BCCI supremo N. Srinivasan and outgoing IPL chairman Brijesh Patel. Srinivasan reportedly accused Sourav of non-performance and ambushing BCCI’s brands during the meeting in New Delhi,” a top BCCI official told Cricket Age .
